Brant Rosen is Rabbi of the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregaton, Evanston, IL., and Co-Chair Jewish Voice for Peace Rabbinical Council . His activism changed dramatically in Decemeber 2008, when Israel launched a 23-day military attack against Gaza, causing him to deeply question his lifelong liberal Zionism. Unlike the biblical Jacob, who wrestled in the dark of night at a crucial turning point in his life, Rabbi Rosen chose to make his struggle public in his blog, Shalom Rav. Wrestling in the Daylight: A Rabbi's Path to Palestinian Solidarity is his self-curated compilation of these blog posts. He writes, "I believe we must find a way to widen the limits of public discourse on Israel/Palestine, no matter how painful the prospect. It is my fervent hope that these conversations might represent, in their small way, a step toward the light of day."
